peace in my mirror ~ Tomas Karkalas
I used to do a lot of painting, but at exhibitions, I needed to give paintings names. So I had to retrain and become a poet. I see peace in the mirror, but the world sees the elders as a burden.
What is it? How do you call it? The rhetoric of wisdom, or the whims of personalities?
When I learned how to hold a pencil, getting to know the elementary enabled me to draw a sketch. Years have passed … now I have long enjoyed reading, the real art of understanding the world and myself. And that’s much more than browsing the internet for ABC links. Time taught me to know the letters that led me to the life of prayer. The sense of human being opened the door to the mystery of silence.
Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live. ~ Attributed to Jacqueline Winspear
The world is a dangerous place.
Not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.
– Albert Einstein
Great posts worth seeing from Tomas Karkalas: What next?

Do you know that keeping the diary has the therapeutic value ? And reading the diary… is it the healing too? That’s why I’m sharing my thoughts with you. Your comments will give a meaning to my creativity – being here and now. Thank You….

It all depends on the point of view.”

Yes, my name is not an exception too, dear Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The integration of art to life not embellishes, but changes our life. As the pictures knock on the heart, the artworks transform the human mindset, and new way of thinking silences the beggars.
For example, I have no money at a moment, yet it does not matter any. Though my financial situation looks hopelessly and threatens to stop any creative work, yet I still have everything I need to share my heart– I have my tongue and am free to speak, to greet you and share my thoughts with you. As Enreal says “And remember to see what we need to face” Thus let Peace and Love mark our starting point and define the day-to day being. Just click on above and speak your mind.

I checked out my archives and saw my old picture that you see above in the new light. The quote reminded me about the timeless wisdom. It was like a sense of joy for the first breathe. Let me share that discovery with you now.
“No doubt one may quote history to support any cause,
as the devil quotes scripture.” — Learned Hand
People have learned to talk politics wisely. Therefore it is hardly surprising that all have started to write and are longing for the readers.
The same remains just silent smell of the flowers.
‘The danger of the past was that men became slaves. The danger of the future is that man may become robots.’ — Erich Fromm
Wise sayings comfort the oldsters, release people of good will from the killing sense of their loneliness. Thus the quotes serve as the modern lullabies for the adults. The silent remarks gather together the ages: the strangers beam with the same mindset. The retorts don’t complaint to us of the physical helplessness of their authors, but boldly point to the eternities and thus remind us of God. The tourists rejoice at unforgettably beautiful churches, group their shots and wonder at just one entrance that allures many but opens just to personal knock at a door.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
says: The notion of looking on at life has always been hateful to me. What am I if I am not a participant? In order to be, I must participate
This shot was taken once upon a time … Though it was done not today, but the message remained the same. I hope the quote above have expressed my dreams.
